But Dear! It’s For The Cabin!!

Yes, I know it is Quilt Cam Night….And I promise to be home in time!

But I was looking for just a CABINET for a treadle head that I have…..

And…oh LAWWWW!

That’s the problem with cabinets…they usually come with machines still attached!

And this one is only $65 and it is in AWESOME condition.

How can I NOT?!?

  3. I finally checked out the serial number on my treadle. Singer site reads that it is from 1910. I purchased it in Worcester, Mass in 1980 and there is a little business card in there from a sewing business from the same city. It has one of those long bobbins...I think you called them a shuttle? It is the shape of a bullet and I have three spare bobbins with thread. There are all kinds of attachments, the old leather strap (?) and a new one that I've never put on. You are, of course, firing up my curiosity to see if I could get this machine working. It actually looks to be in pretty good shape. The decals are very ornate and in good shape. The cabinet is like the one you show here except with ornate wood scrolling on either end. I'll have to watch your You Tube video about using those bobbins and find help with getting it all going. Want to come to Cambria? It's lovely here :-)

  5. My Mom has the same exact cabinet if the middle "drawer" tilts out. I don't think her machine has as much inlay as yours. It's beautiful! Congratulations for your new baby! :)

  7. Congratulations. Glorious Cabinet. Beautiful machine. And I'll bet a little Evaporust will take care of all the rust issues. Great going!

  8. If Dave complains, remind him that he told you that you need more "business" purchases . . . .

  9. Me again :-) Found the video you did with Allison. My machine looks a whole lot like hers except the bobbin winder is lower...closer to the base of the machine. I think from your discussion with her, mine may actually be from 1928. Hope I can get her going. I checked the links on your 'vintage' page and think there is an instruction page that will help. Thanks!

  10. Awesome!! You go girl!!!!! I've been looking for one forever.
    All the ones down here in deep South Texas are totally trashed and sell for $250 and up. Unbelievable.

    1. QwerkyGrl, I have an old Singer Cabinet just like the one Bonnie has pictured. It does NOT have the original sewing machine in it. I had my Singer Golden Touch and Sew installed in the cabinet in about 1970-72 because the old machine was not operable. I'm planning on parting with the machine and cabinet; wish you were in GA, I'd let you have it! My Golden Touch and Sew works fine, has many attachments, original book, etc, but I just don't need it; I have 5 other machines and a Longarm. I lined the drawers and "well" of the cabinet with a Victorian looking fabric when I acquired the cabinet. I have not "tested the market" to see if it would sell.

  13. She looks perfect! So happy for you!

  14. Looks great! I'm still on the hunt for one...may have a lead if I can just get my act together (though I did recently clear out some space in the garage and found the treadle I brought back from England with me! Forgot I had it!)

  15. Nice find. It was meant to be.

  16. Bonnie you are so funny! But true, this is a beauty! Apparently here in East TN folks are still keeping and using their treadles.

  17. What a beautiful machine, my 1917 66 has the same cabinet. Love these old machines, nothing quite as solidly built as one of these. Enjoy!

  18. Lucky you. I can't find anything in that condition around here. Or else Rick gets it first!

  19. If you are really lucky, Bonnie, that baby might just be a model 115!! When you get the serial number you'll know for sure.

  20. Ah! On a hot and steamy afternoon, somewhere an hour off the main road, down the clay lane, no not the one to the right...it goes to the stables. The one curved over yonder.. it'll take you there..Ah! The chase, the hunt, the major FUN, the stories of the ones that got away. Am I talking fishiong? Nope. Sewing machine hunting. We all have stories!

  21. Awwww...darn! I just noticed the bobbin/hook pic and that's not a 115 hook. It's a model 15. BUT, still a fabulous find and super price on a major workhorse beauty!! Will be great for the cabin!!

  22. If I came across that one for $65 I would have bought it too. Good one! And it doesn't have one of those weird (to me) bobbins.

  23. Love this one, thought mine was a good deal, just had to be cleaned. This one is perfect. Congratulations! :-)

  24. Beautiful machine, I can't believe the price! My sister bought one here in Aus looks the same she paid $250 for hers! and has no intention of sewing on it:( I have a Husqvarna 10 treadle, my frame has the name Kennedy where it usually says Singer! Do you have any idea why that would be, I had to get it as that is my surname:) Enjoy your new machine and cabin.

  25. That is a gorgeous machine and cabinet!!! You got a great find!

  26. I would love to dig through your shirt stash too. I'm sure Tonya had a great time, lol. Nancy

  27. It is a beauty! Of course, you HAVE to have one at the cabin!

  28. What a lucky find! Isn't it just perfect for your new (sigh!) cabin in the woods? I am very happy for you and your family--
    I am sewing along with your crumbly rectangles and just LOVIN' the whole process--so fun!! My DH thinks I've "lost it"--little does he know that "it's" been gone a long time ago!! (LOL)
    My DD and her 4 children come today to "beach it" and leave their doggie for us to dogsit for a week while they go to Cape Cod!

    Am very excited to have a dog in our home again (Trying to talk DH into getting another--it's our 1st 7 yrs after our darling Winnie passed--Eng Springer Spaniel--what a love)...Enjoy, enjoy enjoy your much deserved vacation home...Hugs Julierose
